Of the seven species of bats that can be found in Minnesota, only two will try to take up residence in your home. Those two species are the little brown myotis and the large brown bat. This sounds like pretty good odds, right? Not exactly. The reality is that most people, even those who are not afraid of bats, do not want any species of bat moving into their house. We understand bats, and we respect the good they do for our environment and various ecosystems. However, we also understand that no one would want to share their home with a bat family. Whether you are not quite certain but think it is possible you have bats in your attic, or if you have had the recent experience of squealing and ducking for cover because a bat has flown through your living room, contact Minnesota Wild Animal Management for immediate assistance.

Bats are actually amazing creatures. They are, like opossums, experts at managing the insect population of Minnesota. If you think we have a lot of mosquitos, try to imagine how many more there would be if we did not have those seven species of bats to keep the mosquito population in check. Bats perform services that humans simply cannot. They are intelligent and sensitive creatures. But we also know that there is no chance of convincing you that they should be welcomed as house guests. Bats can carry disease including rabies and should never be handled by someone without proper training and equipment.
The two species of bats who do seek residential opportunities with humans likely find their way in through small openings around windows or vents, or possibly where the frame of your house meets the roof. Not only are bats intelligent, but they are also opportunistic and flexible, which means that they do not need a large opening and an invitation to enter your home. A tiny opening and an opportunity are really the only things required to allow a bat and some buddies to get in. Once inside, they are very good at making themselves at home.
